It is Islam, Stupid!

So, here we go again; another week where another Muslim act of terrorism takes place, this time in San Bernadino, California.

To add insult to injury (and death), we have the same irresponsible handling of the case by those in charge, as they do everything possible to avoid dealing with the real problem, which is Islam itself.

Shortly after Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik finished showering those at the Inland Regional Center with dozens of rounds of gunfire, my immediate thoughts were, were the Muslims involved? If so, will this be whitewashed like all the other criminal acts?

It came as no surprise to find out that, yes, it was the Muslims, and yes, everyone is bending over backwards to keep from having to admit it.

Only within the past few hours of this article has the FBI now come to the conclusion that last Wednesday’s massacre was related to terrorism.

That said, they would not come out and say that Islam was the motive. Instead, they, like so many, do not have a motive, even though it is staring them straight in the face.

Maybe it is because right after the media began reporting what happened, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) had forced its way before the American public to make sure everyone knew that all the mayhem had nothing to do with Islam.

Of course, the media lapdogs lapped up all the swill pouring forth from the Los Angeles CAIR representative, while failing to report that CAIR’s history is replete with ties to terrorist groups like Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

In other words, when CAIR spoke up, the media went into overdrive to make sure their conclusions and commentary were in-line with denials of Islamic responsibility.

Heaven forbid that anyone should tell the truth about Islam’s history of treachery and terror, how it continues to serve up contemporary examples of more of the same.

So, instead of starting with Islam as the basis for the San Bernadino carnage, we are to consider “work place violence,” ISIS “radicalization,” and even global warming as the culprits.

If those do not work for us, then we should seriously consider CAIR’s suggestions, that it was the host country’s politics or even the victims themselves.

According to CAIR’s Executive Director in Los Angeles, Hussam Ayloush, “When we support coup leaders in Egypt or other places, when we support dictatorship, oppressive regimes around the world that push people over on the edge, then they become extremists, then they become terrorists. We are partly responsible.”

So, those fourteen San Bernadino victims along with the other twenty that were wounded were “partly responsible” for their own deaths and injuries, and that because their government supposedly did things that the victims had no control over?

No, Mr. Ayloush. It was Islam that provided the rationale for these latest murders, as well as others where Muslims were involved. Murder starts in the mind, not in things, persons, or events external to it.

Of course, the refrain has been heard, “Not all Muslims are terrorists,” which is a half-truth. The Koran, however, makes it perfectly clear that all Muslims ought to be terrorists. In fact, Surah 3.151 tells us, “We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve.”

Some might argue that that verse only applied to certain Muslims on a certain occasion, but it needs to be pointed out that such verses provide a precedent that would contribute to the Sunnah (actions or example of Muhammad) that later Muslims are to emulate.

When we take a look at Muhammad’s life, he repeatedly struck terror before the eyes of those he carried out his vengeful ways. A classic example is his own personal beheading of up to 900 Jews shortly after what became known as the Battle of the Ditch (Trench).

What Farook and Malik did, therefore, was perfectly in line with the Koran, the Sunnah, and Islam’s overall agenda, which is to destroy Western civilization from within, lest we forget the Muslim Brotherhood’s, of which CAIR is a part, Explanatory Memo.

Until law enforcement, our political representatives, and the media quit pandering to the Muslims, then with each passing act of Islamic terrorism will only result in the United States being one-step closer to becoming a Muslim nation.

Whereas Muslim terrorism was an infrequent hiccup in the news only a few years ago, it is now happening with more frequency. The ideology that is driving the butchery is Islam and those persons in positions of influence need to quit being stupid about it.
